Noah This week several great movies are coming out, including a few that shouldn't be missed: Noah [review] - Paramount's Blu-ray looks and sounds utterly phenomenal and while the stark boldness won't be to everyone's tastes, the journey and destination are all quite absorbing; Separate Tables [review] - a terrific drama that grapples with some heavy issues with a delicate touch and sensitive insight... an all-star cast includes Oscar-winners David Niven and Deborah Kerr, as well as a forceful performance by Burt Lancaster; and Paris Blues [review] - Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier star as musicians who have left America in search of success and find themselves being drawn back home when two women (Joanne Woodward and Diahann Carroll) come over from the States and in search of vacation love affairs. Other reviews of note include Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXX [review], The Big Chill: Criterion Collection [review], and Bubble Guppies: Get Ready for School! [review]. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Born Yesterday Check out the latest DVD reviews that have been entered into the DVD Talk Review Database including: Born Yesterday - a revered comedy that delivers the laughs, this film made Judy Holliday a star and earned her an Academy Award in the process; Cesar Chavez - a quality dramatized history lesson with an inspirational story which is still remarkably relevant to our time; and Watermark - this 93-minute documentary explores our planet's relationship with one of its most valuable resources... a release no documentary fan should pass up.

Poirot This week Greg Bakun begins a series of articles for Brit-Streaming looking at the final series of Agatha Christie’s Poirot. This beloved series has been on the air since 1989 and sadly comes to an end this month. AcornTV is making these episodes available on their streaming service with many of the episodes as exclusives to the service. The first article looks at the premiere episode of Series 13, The Big Four. This episode is a lot more than style over substance as we follow Poirot through a complicated series of events. Who are the people behind the Big Four and why are they trying to edge the UK closer to the Second World War? In addition to the in-depth look at this episode, there is a ton of information about what is coming up on AcornTV and what to look out for during the month of August. Read all this, and more, in the latest installment of Brit-Streaming!

Lucy Before you head off to the cinema this weekend, check out DVD Talk's reviews of the latest releases including: Lucy [a 2nd review] - Scarlett Johansson stars in writer/director Luc Besson's film that should be a high point of this summer's movie crop... but isn't; Magic in the Moonlight - Woody Allen continues to churn out reliably entertaining movies that would be easy to take for granted, but you shouldn't... this one is worth checking out; and A Most Wanted Man - Anton Corbijn's adaptation of a John Le Carre novel deals with the shadowy waters of international intelligence and stars Philip Seymour Hoffman in his last role. Other recent films include: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Boyhood, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Snowpiercer, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Snowpiercer, Chef, 22 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Signal, Edge of Tomorrow, The Fault in Our Stars, Maleficent, Night Moves, A Million Ways to Die in the West, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Godzilla, Neighbors, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

Bob's Burgers: Season 3 Some great TV shows have made their way onto DVD this week including: Regular Show: The Complete Third Season - Bob Belcher and his family have taken over the top spot among animated TV clans, delivering the funny every episode, without relying on crutches or easy jokes, a matter proven in the show's terrific third season; Mapp & Lucia: The Complete Collection - spiteful, hateful fun... if you like your British comedy full of well-spoken malice, then this series is right up your alley; and Eastbound & Down: Season 4 - this forth season was conceived as a way to show Kenny Powers in a more positive, nay "normal" light. It succeeds in spades. Other shows recently reviewed include:  Mountain Men: Season 2, Covert Affairs: Season 4, and Moonshiners Season 2.  Want more?  Check out all of the TV on DVD reviews in the DVD Talk database.

Anime Midwest 2014

For the past few years, fans have been attending Anime Midwest watching it grow as each year passes by. Now in it's fourth year, over eight thousand fans flocked to the halls of the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, Illinois to join on this year's sure to be exciting festivities. DVD Talk's resident otaku, Kyle Mills, decided to make the trek across nearly 350 miles to experience Anime Midwest 2014 and found that there were many things to love about the con, despite some disorganization (which is to be expected with conventions). The con featured a great guest list, headlined by one of the biggest anime voice over names in the business, some fantastic panels, concerts, a spacious dealer's/artist's alley, numerous video game and card game rooms, either for leisurely play or tournaments. Read Kyle's complete coverage of the event in this exclusive DVD Talk report!


Hearts and Minds This week the DVD Savant has a number of new reviews and articles including: Hearts and Minds - The first and most affecting anti-war documentary about Vietnam told truths that Americans didn't want to hear, just as Watergate and the failed war were winding down; The Scalphunters - Burt Lancaster's western ego-fest has him sparring with escaped slave Ossie Davis, while struggling to retrieve the furs he's trapped from a friendly (but greedy) Indian chief; and Violent Saturday - Stephen McNally, J. Carrol Naish and Lee Marvin pull off a bank heist that cuts a bloody swath through several soapy relationships. Read all this and more in this week's DVD Savant.
